I´m a 29-year-old kindergarten teacher from the Netherlands. I work at a relatively small school in a multi-cultural part of Utrecht, one of the four big cities. I love my job, the kids and my co-workers. The administration though? Not so much.
I live in a small town about 15 km from Utrecht. It´s the town I grew up in and I moved back here over the summer after living in a tiny village for the past five years. I´ve bought an apartment (big step, very scary) and at the moment I´m sharing it with my sister Jo.
I have another sister and a brother and my parents live a few blocks away.
I have a cat named Minoes, a 7-year-old, spoiled rotten, calico girl and my sister has a 6-months-old kitten called Saartje. I love all kind of animals, but cats are definitely my favourite.
I like reading and crafting. I´m doing the ´30 books for 2013´ challenge (although secretly I want to try and reach 50) and I`m into all kinds of DIY projects: paper crafts, decorating, crocheting, painting etc. I *love* colour and patterns, especially dots. (red and white polka dots being my favourite)
Or, to sum me up in 5 words: teaching, family, cats, faith, creating
About my journal:
I post mostly about my day-to-day life: happenings at school, craft projects I´m working on, anecdotes from traveling by bus… I also regularly post pictures. I like to think I´m a person who comments on their friends entries regularly. I´m looking for people with similar interests and I love to have fellow teachers on my flist, especially if they´re working with young children.
I`m not much into excessive fandom-related posting, especially I don´t know anything about it. My journal is pretty much ´all ages´ and I´m not a big fan of very explicit content.
There´s some extra info on my profile, so if you´re interested, have a look!
Drama in the Dutch Department is the title of my journal, but actually, my journal is pretty drama-free and I like to keep it that way. I try to not use my LJ as a place to whine and complain about everything.
